Former Megachurch Pastor Rob Bell Tells Oprah The Church Is ‘Moments Away’ From Abandoning Traditional Faith To Embrace The Days Of Lot

Kristen Bell (L), Oprah Winfrey and former Mars Hill Bible Church pastor and best-selling author Rob Bell (R).

Former Mars Hill Bible Church pastor and best-selling author Rob Bell told media mogul Oprah Winfrey on Sunday that the American church is “moments away” from embracing gay marriage and thinks “it’s inevitable.” Bell made the statement during a Valentine’s weekend episode of Winfrey’s “Super Soul Sunday” television show where he appeared with his wife, Kristen, to discuss marriage and their new book, The ZimZum of Love: A New Way of Understanding Marriage.

The same-sex marriage discussion portion of the episode, which can be viewed below, starts at around the 29-minute mark where Kristen begins reading an excerpt from the book.
"Marriage, gay and straight, is a gift to the world because the world needs more not less love, fidelity, commitment, devotion and sacrifice," she noted.

Winfrey then tells the couple that she thought it was great that they made a conscious choice to include gay marriage in the book, and asked them why?

"One of the oldest aches in the bones of humanity is loneliness," replied Rob Bell. "Loneliness is not good for the world. Whoever you are, gay or straight, it is totally normal, natural and healthy to want someone to go through life with. It's central to our humanity. We want someone to go on the journey with."

#FreeKent Hovind

More on the absurd arrest and imprisonment of Christian teacher and witness Kent Hovind, often referred to as "Dr. Dino", for his lectures on Genesis, dinosaurs and Creation.  It's remarkable the number of evil people who were involved with this travesty of justice.

I can't help but feel a duty to spread the word and just do something to help a brother in need (I wish i could say the same about many so-called believers in Jesus i have asked, but to no avail, like EMPTY WELLS), if people would just spread the word or just sign the petition and read the story!. They are trying to get Kent Hovind (Who is innocent) re-convicted by the same judge! that is an anti-christian, and Kent Hovind is facing between 20 years to LIFE!, please read the full story!. Kent Hovind was married a virgin, he has never smoked, he has never even tasted alcohol and he is a dedicated true servant of God on the front lines living a selfless life and i just can't stand by and watch an innocent man be persecuted like this!. "It will be measured to you as you have measured"-Jesus Christ God in the Flesh.

This video was made by a youtube user named "tigerdan925" kudos where due thanks!.

 This is an update on the latest Kent Hovind support....

ISIS Leader Admits: We Are Being Funded By The Obama Administration

There is a greater truth than the title in this article.  The truth that the governments of the world are not simply in the hands of foolish, selfish and ignorant men, but of devilish men, driven by their god.  Good stuff...

By Theodore Shoebat
An ISIS leader named Yousef al-Salafi in Pakistan has admitted that ISIS is being funded by the USA, and thus, the Obama administration. This came from a statement done by the Pakistani government which interrogated Yousef and received this information from him. There was a news report done on this:


A source privy to the investigations said:
During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organisation in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria
One source said that al Salafi confessed that he and another ally — said to be an imam — was getting paid by the US to recruit youths to join ISIS for $600 a recruit.
The same source said:
The US has been condemning the IS activities but unfortunately has not been able to stop funding of these organisations, which is being routed through the US… The US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests and that is why it launched offensive against the organisation in Iraq but not in Syria
The Obama administration funding ISIS should not surprise us. Lets not forget that the Obama administration has refused to back Egypt in its destruction of ISIS, and is working with Turkey which one of the main backers of ISIS. Let us also not forget that the USA supports the FSA and is working to continue to fund and train jihadists in Syria to overthrow the Assad regimen, an action that will only allow the Islamists, and ultimately Turkey, to dominate the Middle East.

The world truly is ruled by the devil, and all of his demons are possessing the most powerful people in the world, and while they make us think that they are doing the “right thing,” they are in reality supporting the epitome of all evil. From psychiatric drugs, Islamic terrorists, the slaughter of innocent infants, to the homosexual agenda, the evils that we see in front of our eyes are being empowered wicked men, embellished with suites and smiles.

We think the Islamic terrorists are the only evil, but the truth remains that the most demonic people are the ones behind the curtain of destruction, directing the scenes of perdition, while going before cameras with sharp grins, hand waves, and a lofty podium, and they are in power only because the masses allow them to be in power.

Let us always keep in mind that it was George Bush who removed Saddam, who was suppressing the jihadists and protecting the Christians, and all that did was set the stage for all of these Islamists to invade the Middle East, and from such chaos and disorder, ISIS was formed.
The fact remains that America is aiding the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, because at the end of the day, that is the ultimate goal of the jihadists: destroy Christianity.

This ISIS commander was in Pakistan, which means he was working to form a full sharia state in that country, which would only lead to a systematic slaughter of the Christian population.

We must help our Christian brethren in Pakistan from being slaughtered. Our organization, Rescue Christians, has saved thousands of Christians in Pakistan from murder and sexual torture. Help us rescue more Christians.

Rutherford Exiled for Publishing

Rutherford Exiled for Publishing
Not many pastors rise at 3 A.M. to be sure they have sufficient time for God and their people. Samuel Rutherford was one who did. Thus it came as a great blow to him when he was compelled to leave the folk he loved.

Rutherford had published an Apology of Divine Grace against the heresy of righteousness based on human works. This work offended the government. On this day, February 20, 1636, Archbishop Laud, who controlled the established churches of Britain, exiled Rutherford to Aberdeen. He forbade him to preach anywhere in Britain.

It might seem Rutherford could not be blamed if he slipped into depression. The years had not been kind to him. In 1630, after barely five years of marriage, his wife died following a painful illness of thirteen months. Their two children also died, and Samuel himself suffered a debilitating fever for three months. Now he was in exile, excluded from the work he cherished most.

But rather than become depressed, he wrote encouraging letters to his friends and his church home. These are full of wise and pithy sayings: "Duties are ours, and events are the Lord's." Or, "It is not for us to set an hourglass to the Creator of time."

The hundreds of letters he wrote in exile became a classic. Full of encouragement and loving devotion to Christ, they showed that Rutherford had an intimate communion with the Lord and was not afraid to talk about it. He always wrote about Christ and the wondrous glory of His Person.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon later said, "When we are dead and gone, let the world know that Spurgeon held Rutherford's letters to be the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of mere man."

In 1638 Rutherford was restored to his church. His many sufferings gave him even greater sympathy for the suffering in his flock.

During the 1640s, Rutherford represented the church of Scotland in the Westminster Assembly in London. He helped author the Shorter Catechism, with its famous beginning, "What is the chief end of man?"

British scientists say metal ball containing bio matter could be alien 'seed'

I hate to burst their bubble, but since it was recently discovered, it seems much more likely something that one of our governments has released in the upper atmosphere. There are plenty of example of this every day. If you need proof, just look up...

A newly discovered microscopic ball could have been sent to earth by an alien civilization in an attempt to start new life, a British scientist has claimed.

The mysterious metal sphere has been photographed spewing out a biological substance, which scientists believe could be genetic material.

It was discovered by a team of researchers at the University of Sheffield and the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology.

While several theories on the tiny ball's origins have been volunteered, the most intriguing sound like pure science fiction.

They include the idea it was sent here by aliens with the intention of propagating life on earth, a scientific theory known as "directed panspermia."

Notable scientists to advocate this idea include astrophysicist Carl Sagan and Nobel laureate Francis Crick, who co-discovered the structure of DNA.

Professor Milton Wainwright, who led the team, described the orb as "a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its center."

Speaking to the Daily Express, Wainwright said: "We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium."

"One theory is it was sent to earth by some unknown civilization in order to continue seeding the planet with life."

"Unless of course we can find details of the civilization that is supposed to have sent it in this respect it is probably an unprovable theory," he added.

Mysterious metal ball.
Scientists discovered the perplexing orb when they sent balloons 27 kilometers into the atmosphere to collect dust and particle matter from space.

Wainwright led the research project with a view to proving that microscopic life organisms are continually arriving from space.

He said the metal ball left a tiny impact when it struck the balloon.

"No Marker for Me," Urged Alexander Mack

"No Marker for Me," Urged Alexander Mack
Although Alexander Mack was behind not just one but several new denominations, he did not want that reputation. He was so determined not to be honored as a founder of new sects that when he lay dying, he said, "Now when I am gone, don't mark my grave, or they might sometime want to erect a monument...." His children protested and finally he agreed to allow them to remember him with a small slab. Mack died on this day, February 19, 1735, in Germantown, Pennsylvania.

His pilgrimage from Germany to the graveyard in Germantown was the result of faith. Mack was born near Heidelberg, Germany in 1679 and baptized as a baby in the Reformed church. He had intended to go to college, but the death of an older brother forced him to work the family mill. An avid reader, he never stopped educating himself.

The state churches of Germany seemed lifeless to Mack. And he was appalled by the way "Christian" armies butchered one another in Europe. Influenced by the religious awakening known as Pietism, he saw that Christianity must be more a matter of the heart than of the head.

He studied the Bible and became convinced that the established churches were not following its teachings. Although there was a law against leading private Bible studies in the home, he defied it. One day, while he worshipped with a number of others, authorities broke in and threatened to arrest them all.

Mack and his wife fled with their children. They found refuge in Schwarzenau, a village near Marburg. From the Bible, he concluded that the only meaningful baptism was by immersion of believers who were old enough to understand the act. He and seven others, who had been baptized as children, decided to obey Scripture as they understood it. Mack pleaded that they draw lots to see who should conduct the ceremony, not wanting to be known as the founder of yet another religious group. But in August 1708, after one of the other believers baptized Mack in the Eder river, he baptized the rest.

Because of their views on baptism, these brethren became known by such names as Dunkards, Tunkards, and Old Baptists.

Mack insisted that followers of Christ must count the cost. They must be prepared to suffer the loss of everything for the sake of their Lord. At love feasts, these brethren would sing hymns, examine their consciences, and wash one another's feet. They followed this with a simple meal. Soon their numbers had grown to 200.

Persecution again threatened. The non-violent brethren fled to the Netherlands where Mennonites helped them. While he was in the Netherlands, Mack's wife and a young daughter died.

Circumstances changed. Led by Mack, 59 families of these brethren migrated to Pennsylvania, rejoicing in their new-found religious freedom. Again Mack's influence was great and the Dunkards founded several congregations. To these early congregations, several of America's Brethren denominations trace their roots and practices.

DARPA Developing Game Changers With Big Vision For New Forms Of Humans–Resistance Is Futile, You WILL Be Assimilated

DARPA, the Defense Research Projects Agency, is perhaps best known for its role as progenitors of the computer networking and the Internet. Formed in the wake of the Soviet Union’s surprise launch of Sputnik, DARPA’s objective was to ensure that the United States would avoid technological surprises in the future. This role was later expanded to causing technological surprises as well. And although DARPA is and has been the leading source of funding for artificial intelligence and a number of other transhumanist projects, they’ve been missing in action for a while. Nothing DARPA has worked on since seems to have had the societal impact of the invention of the Internet. But that is about to change. The current director of DARPA is Dr. Arati Prabhakar. She is the second female director of the organization, following the previous and controversial director Regina Dugan who left the government to work at Google. The return to big visions and big adventures was apparent and in stark contrast to Dugan’s leadership of the organization. Quoted in WIRED, Dugan had, for example, stated that “There is a time and a place for daydreaming. But it is not at DARPA,” and she told a congressional panel in March 2011, “Darpa is not the place of dreamlike musings or fantasies, not a place for self-indulging in wishes and hopes. DARPA is a place of doing.” Those days are gone. DARPA’s new vision is simply to revolutionize the human situation and it is fully transhumanist in its approach.

Theodora Restored Icons

Leo III was right about icons, but people love their images and idols...and will summon up any justification they might imagine to find a reason to have one.
Theodora Restored Icons
Imagine a bloody struggle, fought over the course of a hundred years, about the use of images in worship. It actually happened. Emperors of Byzantium, having set their minds to control the church and its forms of worship, used armies to oppose the veneration of icons, smashing many of the art works in the process. This destruction of icons is called iconoclasm.

An icon is a stylized representation of God, Christ, or a saint. By the early middle ages, icons (and other images) were widely used as aids to devotion--or as objects of worship. Often, the devotees bowed to these aids and kissed them. To some believers this was shocking. They argued that the Ten Commandments forbade worshipping images. To them, icons were no more than idols. The only allowable representation of Christ was the bread and wine, they said. Scripture and early church practice were against icons, they insisted. Furthermore, it violated the church's definition of Christ as both God and man to try to capture the essence of Christ in any representation. Many iconoclasts also opposed prayer to saints and veneration of relics.

Byzantine Emperor Leo III saw icons as the chief reason Jews and Moslems could not be won to Christ and also as a cause of national disunity. At first he merely tried to persuade his people of this. But when a violent undersea eruption shook Constantinople, Leo took it as a warning from God. He ordered his soldiers to tear down a famed picture of Christ. When some old women pushed the ladder from under the soldiers, riots commenced. After that, Leo violently persecuted bishops and monks who favored icons. In 754, he convoked a council to rule against the images.

Those who defended icons said they weren't images. An image represents what a thing really is. An icon attempts to convey spiritual truth. Defenders claimed that the early church did, indeed, use icons. For instance, tradition said that Luke painted a picture of Mary that is now in Rome. The famous bishop John Chrysostom found inspiration in a portrait of Paul. Icons are a true response to the creeds, they argued. Christ had a real body that could be portrayed.

Emperor Constantine V was even more opposed to icons than Leo. He renewed the persecution. More blood flowed. But after his death, Empress Irene worked with the Patriarch of Constantinople to call another council, the Second Council of Nicaea (787). This one favored icons. However, the emperors and army remained opposed. Not until this day, February 19, 842, which was the first Sunday of Lent, were icons restored to the churches in solemn processions. The Empress Theodora had a strong part in the restoration. The first Sunday of Lent is still observed as the "Feast of Orthodoxy" in Eastern churches.

The Protestant reformers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries sympathized with the iconoclasts. God must be worshipped in "spirit and in truth," they taught. Protestant gangs sometimes smashed images in churches. The reformers firmly rejected prayer to saints and repudiated veneration of relics.

The Zero Theorem - Movie Review by Truthstream Media

The Zero Theorum.
The Zero Theorum.
Guest Post: Aaron and Melissa Dykes

It was a subtle and quick moment in the film, but one worthy of pointing out.

Terry Gilliam’s latest The Zero Theorem portrays a near-future society run by scientific materialism, a place where hyper-stimulation through the ever-present telescreens, billboards, targeted advertisements that literally follow you down the street, pop music, signs and other continuous stimuli have created a dumbed-down, consumerist society with little meaning.

Only slightly ahead of where Western culture has already brought us, the film portrays a shallow and narcissistic culture obsessed with smart phones, tablet devices and even new religions based upon pop figures and superheroes (hinted at in references to the Church of Batman the Redeemer, for example).

In this context, Gilliam slips in a street scene with colorful trashcans and recycling bins which are probably familiar to most – yet with a slight but important alteration to those paying attention.

Compare the screenshot from the film above to the cutesy waste/recycling bins from real life, like the ones seen below:
The bins in Gilliam’s film are ALMOST conventional… but not quite: notice where the trash is thrown away – not in the mouth, but in a hole between the eyes in the forehead of the anthropomorphic receptacles.

This is the exact location of the so-called “Third Eye,” which marks the location of the pineal gland behind the forehead and the position of the 6th chakra, which many ancient cultures have associated with intuition, knowledge, and insight. As Eden Shetiyah of In5D wrote:

The pineal gland, referred to as the Third Eye, the Eye of Horus or the Seat of the Soul, is a small pine cone shaped organ inside your brain that secretes hormones like melatonin, serotonin and DMT (Dimethyltryptamine), also known as the Spirit Molecule. Melatonin and serotonin are responsible for sleep or meditative states, and emotional states of well-being, bliss and euphoria.
On the energy level, the pineal gland is the physical manifestation of the 6th Chakra – Ajna, associated with true mystic potential, perception of non-physical reality and spiritual wisdom.
Because of its pine cone shape, the pineal gland is often symbolized by a pine cone.
This means that in Gilliam’s latest dystopic world (like his masterpiece, Brazil), the population is literally “trashing” its third eye.

Trashing something which most people never even learn the significance of in the first place…
In this parody of society as depicted, people have learned to love their servitude. They are trained to obey, consume, and waste without any long-term critical thought on the matter, not only about the environmental impact of a disposable society (where we are considered as disposable as our disposables), but about the literal long-term price of eating and drinking from cheap plastic containers filled with endocrine disrupting chemicals like BPA; consuming what essentially amounts to garbage — energetically dead, genetically modified foods filled with dangerous, potentially carcinogenic synthetic additives and tainted with pesticides; and a world completely saturated with wi-fi and electronic stimulation under an ever-present big brother police state.

People are consuming garbage, then throwing the garbage of that garbage into an anthropomorphic trashcan’s third eye in a cartoonish mirroring of themselves like the wasted system slaves they’ve so clearly become.

Beyond that, if we never connect to the ancient spiritual wisdom buried within each of us, we may never know our own true power as individuals, just as the powers that shouldn’t be would prefer to keep it.

Trashing our third eye…

Celebrating the Memory of Armenia's Mesrob

Mesrob is one of those forgotten heroes who altered the course of history for literally millions of people...

Celebrating the Memory of Armenia's Mesrob
The monk Mesrob belongs on any list of the ten greatest men of Armenian history. A Catholic historian wrote, "To Mesrob we owe the preservation of the language and literature of Armenia; but for his work, the people would have been absorbed by the Persians and Syrians, and would have disappeared like so many nations of the East." But Mesrob's importance goes beyond that. Thanks to the alphabet that he invented and the schools that he founded to teach his people, old versions of the Bible and of other early Christian writings were preserved. These would have been lost to western Christians otherwise. Mesrob is remembered in church calendars on this day, February 19th.

Mesrob was born in Armenia around the year 361. Becoming a master of several languages, he was employed as a secretary to his king, translating his orders into Greek, Persian and Syriac so that as many people as possible could understand them, since Armenian was not yet a written language.
Evidently Mesrob felt something was lacking in his life. Although a successful civil servant, he wanted to work directly for God. He became a monk, took holy orders and withdrew to a monastery where he deliberately subjected himself to suffering in order to harden his body, firm up his mind, and deepen his spiritual determination. Then Mesrob went out to preach. Although he won many converts, he found great difficulty building them up, because there was no national literature. With financial backing from the king and phonetic help from others, Mesrob created an alphabet of thirty-six letters for his people. The Armenian tongue had complex sounds not found in the Greek, Syriac and Persian.

Armenia had been the world's first Christian nation, but it became a battleground between the clashing Roman and Persian empires. In Mesrob's own lifetime, these foreign powers split his country between them. Historians agree that Mesrob's invention of the alphabet saved Armenia and gave it a national spirit all its own. (A similar case in the West is that of Alfred the Great in England). The Bible was soon translated into Armenian and many other books written or translated using the new script. The result was a body of national literature that inspired this Christian people and held them together when outside forces threatened to destroy them. Mesrob, who lived on the Persian side of Armenia, got permission to preach and teach on the Roman side.

He worked among the Georgians, Albanians, and Aghouanghks, too, adapting his alphabet to their languages. He planned for the future, not only preaching the Gospel, but building schools and appointing men to continue his work after him. Like the Apostle Paul in Asia Minor, he later went back and visited the churches he founded to strengthen them in their faith.

When he died in 441, all recognized that a great man had passed from the face of the earth. His body was laid in the crypt of the church at Oshakan. A beautiful cathedral now marks the spot.

Ephesians 2:10 - Your Life is a Poem, and YAHWEH is the Author

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.  (Eph. 2:10) 

Need a little encouragement?  Take this verse to heart.  Paul is telling us here that those who follow Jesus Christ are (God’s) workmanship.  The Greek word used here for workmanship is poiema, and might look familiar.  It’s the origin of the English word poem.  Therefore, we are God’s poem.  Now considering that God is perfect in all His ways, any work of art He creates is, well, pretty amazing to say the least.  Our lives are poems being written by God.  That’s good stuff! 

But it gets better.  We are created in Christ Jesus for good works.  Now these aren’t just your everyday good works that you or I might come up with.  These are good works that are pre-ordained.  Now if something was ordained before we were born, then God must be the One ordaining these works.  So we are created (God’s poem) for good works that God has pre-ordained!   

If you are feeling the stress of these times, take this precious verse to heart.  You are a specific work of art, created by none other than the Creator God of the Universe.  And you are more than an inanimate writing or painting, you are a living work of art, created for good works that God has pre-ordained for you.  So when you pray to the Lord today, give Him thanks and praise, because He has loved us and blessed us so richly.  Rejoice!

Death in Dreams and Frightening Entity Appearances

Micah Hanks

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” Thus were the words of Oscar Wilde, who, in discussing the twilight realm of dreams, might well have also noted the other sorts of visions that have long haunted the minds of dreamers each night during the hours while the Sun departs.

Many people report experiencing dreams where, among other seemingly prophetic or symbolic things, they may observe the death of loved ones, or even their own passing. An equally prevalent theme we find in dreams is the appearance of frightening entities, taking the form of ghosts, demons, and a host of different strange otherworldly beings that may seem to represent harbingers, of sorts, for things to come.

I recently received an email from an individual named Vicky, which detailed such an experience. But rather than having featured only a foretelling of things to come, the dream in question involved a slightly more frightening set of circumstances.

“When I was four years old, I had a dream that I was standing in my grandparents’ backyard,” she explained. “It was a bright sunny day and I was standing very still in the grass. My gaze was fixed on their back porch and a large tree that stood in front of it. I looked up into the tree and noticed a dark creature. The creature had a human like figure, but he was crouched down like an animal on one of the branches. His face was hidden in shadow but I could clearly see the whites of his eyes and his teeth. He grinned at me viciously almost mockingly but never said a word. All I felt was fear and confusion.”
Woman alone in the foggy street
Vicky explained that when she woke up from the dream, she had felt panicked. As she regained composure, she went downstairs to the sound of people talking, and found her sister and her aunt sitting on the couch, who told her that her parents had gone to the hospital because of something that had happened to her grandmother. “My Grandmother had a brain aneurysm in the middle of the night,” Vicky explained.

“When my parents got home they told us the rest of the story. My grandmother had been taking her dog outside that evening onto their back porch. She was standing out there for a couple of minutes and started to feel dizzy. She told my grandfather she needed to lie down. I guess sometime later my Grandfather tried waking her up, but the aneurysm must have already occurred.”

“I’m not 100% sure if that was Death I saw in my dream,” Vicky told me, “or something from my imagination. It has been 25 years but I can still remember that dream very vividly. Although other family members of mine have passed away, I have not seen that creature again.”

Kent Hovind responds to latest motion filed by Jezebel prosecutor Pamela C. Marsh

For those who aren't up to date on Dr. Dino (Kent Hovind) and his legal status, he is currently serving a 10 year sentence for not paying taxes.  There's a lot more to it than that, but I will let you watch the video to find out more. 
For some reason, the U.S. Government wants to put Pastor Hovind away even though he and his followers have agreed to pay back-taxes and fines.  Kent has already served 20 months when 14 months is the average sentence for those who fail to pay their taxes.  Obviously, Dr. Hovind has been targeted for some specific reason for this most extreme punishment, and the only thing I can think of is that he's being punished for being an outspoken and educated Christian.  Fascinating and fascist stuff....

Retired Lt. Colonel: Obama Is Arming ISIS to Fight ISIS

Back to the first point of the "ISIS" group, which is, who is funding and supplying them?  From this video, it looks like the U.S. and NATO are actually arming those who become ISIS.


President Barack Obama is set to announce his plan to combat ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria by arming so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels despite the fact that such militants have openly aligned themselves with Islamic State fighters.

Historic Germantown Protest Against Slavery

Historic Germantown Protest Against Slavery
The consciences of individual Christians have often placed them at odds with the behavior of their neighbors. The trail to civil rights was blazed by Christians, especially those who belonged to minority sects. In the Americas, Quakers frequently took the lead. That was true on this day, February 18, 1688, when four Quakers in Germantown, Pennsylvania wrote a protest against enslavement of blacks. This is known as the Germantown Protest.

The four men were Garret Hendericks, Derick up de Graeff, Abraham up den Graef and Francis Daniell Pastorius. Pastorius struggled to word the protest in passable English. Its principle argument, based on the golden rule, was that Christians should do as they would want to be done by. Did capture by Turks frighten whites? In the same way, capture by whites frightened black people. Would whites fight for their freedom? Then blacks had the same right.

Another moral objection to slavery was its nature as theft. It is just as wrong to buy goods you know are stolen as it is to steal the goods yourself. Were not blacks stolen and brought to America against their will? Pastorius pointed out that many of those who would read his argument enjoyed freedom of conscience in Pennsylvania for the first time in their lives. They had fled Europe to escape intolerance there. Why then would they oppress blacks in the same hateful manner in which they had been oppressed?

Adultery is wrong. Yet slavers forced adultery on men and women by breaking up marriages when they resold husbands and wives to different owners. How could such actions be condoned by Christians? The bad report of American slavery shocked the conscience of Europe and kept potential immigrants away. Slavery was not an exercise of Christian liberty, but desperate wrongdoing.
The Germantown protest was written for presentation to a larger monthly meeting to be held at "Richard Worrell's place." Although many German-speaking Quaker and Moravian communities in Pennsylvania and surrounding states stoutly refused to own slaves, others ignored Pastorius's words and joined their secular neighbors in the dreadful human traffic.

The Germantown Protest was lost and not rediscovered for 144 years, just before the Civil War, when demands for the abolition of slavery were at their height. What misery the United States would have been spared if men had listened to the moral warning issued by the four German-speaking men in 1688. What moral warnings do we neglect today that will cost our children equal grief in the future?

Elon Musk, And the Race to Control the Race for Mars (And Insure It)…


.,. and while we're on the subject of space commericalization, "space Bilderbergers," astronauts and cosmonauts in Jedi Knights costumery, Death Stars, and Mars, ponder this article that was shared by Mr. S.D. carefully:

Interesting Plausibility that Elon Musk Could Become a Trillionaire with a City on Mars by 2040

Mr. Musk clearly wants to be on Mars, permanently, and soon. But I hope you caught something that caught my eye when I read this article, and weren't distracted by diagrams of big rocket boosters, stories of reusable boosters, building and testing craft for the journey to Mars, and so on. What really caught my eye was one rather short little statement:
"Elon Musk and his new investors (Google and Fidelity) were planning to create a lower altitude network of thousands of satellites for high speed internet service. The plan is to create a global internet service that could help fund the city on Mars. Spacex satellite network would have up to 4000 smaller mass produced satellites that would fly at about 700 kilometers for faster response and communication speeds."
Now, doing a little dot-connecting here, this means that Google, with all its ties to the NSA, and Fidelity, are major stakeholders in Mr Musk's space enterprises, and therefore, major stakeholders in his Mars ambitions. And thus, an implication (and some of our trademark high octane speculation) immediately follows. Assume, for a moment, that Mr. Musk and his corporation are successful in getting to Mars, and establishing a permanent human colony there. What will they find or discover? Answer: we probably won't be told, other than in very vague terms, for two very simple reasons: (1) it will become somehow a proprietary secret of the corporation, and (2) because of the NSA's indirect involvement via Google, for "national security" reasons. Corporate and government security is a pretty thick veil to pierce.

But there is, in my high octane speculative opinion, and even more intriguing implication in the above statement, and that is the fact that Fidelity is a major stakeholder in Musk's space enterprises. Fidelity is, of course, one of America's and the world's largest investment firms; mutual funds, financial management, retirement investments, and so on, are its stock in trade.

But so is something else: insurance, which is to say, risk reduction. This is a clear sign, in other words, that we are looking at the commercialization of space right now, for real, and in addition to this, we're looking at the standard Veneto-Western model of investment and risk management at work: the bankrollers and insurers get together to fund a risky project: the funding of a few galleys to go trade for some spices in the risky waters of the eastern Mediterranean, for a stake in the profits of what's brought back, but should the whole thing run afoul of solar storms or intergalactic Saracens, there's always the insurance to fall back on...

And that too, raises its own problematic implications. Insurance companies have to be large enough to insure such a venture. A one trillion dollar policy, in case something goes wrong, implies a financial system with hidden financial resources far beyond what has been publicly disclosed (and that brings us right back to one of my favorite hypotheses, namely, that such a system has secretly been in place at least since 1947, if not shortly before). And underwriting policies for something this risky implies yet something else: actuarial tables. How would one go about compiling the actuarial tables for such a venture. Large and powerful insurance firms like Lloyds or Fidelity obvious have the wherewithal to hire the mathematicians to compile and model such things, but ultimately, actuarial tables are compiled from a long history of actual results and tested against them.
So the question becomes, where did that putative historical database come from...? And with that, we're back at Google, and the NSA... It does make one wonder....

Every Pilgrim's Story, by John Bunyan

Every Pilgrim's Story, by John Bunyan
The most popular book of the Christian world, next to the Bible itself saw publication on this day, February 18, 1678. It is a story of fantastic creatures and deadly dangers. In his many adventures, the hero battles with a raging dragon, flounders in a bog from which he is unable to extricate himself, and is chained in a castle, hostage to despair.

The story is Pilgrim's Progress, authored by John Bunyan while he lay in prison for preaching without a license and for other offenses against the established church. Since its publication, it has never been out of print. The book made him famous in his own day and has been a help to Christians for centuries since.

The hero is a pilgrim, a man named Christian, whom we first meet searching for truth and for relief from a terrible load he carries on his back. This load is sin. At the foot of the cross the load tumbles off. Freed, Christian hastens by a path narrow and hard toward an eternal city which is pointed out to him. Along the way he meets a great variety of vividly pictured individuals, some who help and some who hinder him.

And of course, there are giants and dragons: an almost medieval panoply of fearsome or winsome dangers. There is Doubting Castle, the Valley of Shadow and Vanity Fair, all of which the pilgrim must pass.

Rich in allegory, many phrases from the book have come into common use. The narrative itself is larded with biblical quotaations. In the margins John Bunyan cited his scripture references.
Not only English-speaking Christians but also those from the rest of the world have benefited from the tale. Often it is the first book missionaries translate when they complete the Bible in a native language. It has been turned into African, European and Asian tongues.

Surprisingly, the Chinese Communist government also printed the book and 200,000 copies sold out in three days.

Bunyan's pilgrim and all those others who reach the celestial city steadfastly hold one belief: that salvation is of Christ alone. As Hopeful says, "I believed that ...without the righteousness of this Christ all the world could not save me; and therefore thought I to myself, If I leave off [praying to know Christ], I die, and can but die at the Throne of Grace. And withal, this came into my mind, If it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not tarry. So I continued praying until the Father showed me his Son."

This remains the Christian gospel. Pilgrim made it safely to the Celestial City by heeding and believing that message.

What ISIS Really Wants

This is a long, detailed article but with only a few sources, and leaves some of the primary questions about the group unanswered.  Such as, how did ISIS form in Iraq while it was still under U.S. occupation?  Why are they so well funded?  Why are a majority of their members apparently well trained military from the U.S. and Great Britain?  And why would they allow names like ISIS to be used in their identity if they are such radical muslims?  A true muslim would be greatly offended at the use of a pagan goddess name to identify them. 

As always with major journal articles, read with caution.  This may just be what the establishment wants us to think of this mystery group.

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. “We do not even understand the idea.” In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as “not Islamic” and as al-Qaeda’s “jayvee team,” statements that reflected confusion about the group, and may have contributed to significant strategic errors.

The group seized Mosul, Iraq, last June, and already rules an area larger than the United Kingdom. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been its leader since May 2010, but until last summer, his most recent known appearance on film was a grainy mug shot from a stay in U.S. captivity at Camp Bucca during the occupation of Iraq. Then, on July 5 of last year, he stepped into the pulpit of the Great Mosque of al-Nuri in Mosul, to deliver a Ramadan sermon as the first caliph in generations—upgrading his resolution from grainy to high-definition, and his position from hunted guerrilla to commander of all Muslims. The inflow of jihadists that followed, from around the world, was unprecedented in its pace and volume, and is continuing.
Our ignorance of the Islamic State is in some ways understandable: It is a hermit kingdom; few have gone there and returned. Baghdadi has spoken on camera only once. But his address, and the Islamic State’s countless other propaganda videos and encyclicals, are online, and the caliphate’s supporters have toiled mightily to make their project knowable. We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself a harbinger of—and headline player in—the imminent end of the world.

The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior. Its rise to power is less like the triumph of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (a group whose leaders the Islamic State considers apostates) than like the realization of a dystopian alternate reality in which David Koresh or Jim Jones survived to wield absolute power over not just a few hundred people, but some 8 million.

We have misunderstood the nature of the Islamic State in at least two ways. First, we tend to see jihadism as monolithic, and to apply the logic of al‑Qaeda to an organization that has decisively eclipsed it. The Islamic State supporters I spoke with still refer to Osama bin Laden as “Sheikh Osama,” a title of honor. But jihadism has evolved since al-Qaeda’s heyday, from about 1998 to 2003, and many jihadists disdain the group’s priorities and current leadership.

From Manhattan Project to A.I.: The Coming Synthetic Rewrite of Nature

The genetic rewrite and manipulation, predicted long ago by H.G. Wells.
The genetic rewrite and manipulation, predicted long ago by H.G. Wells.

By: Jay

It is not by accident or organic, “grassroots” trend that numerous films are coming focused on artificial intelligence and the transhumanist takeover.  From H.G. Wells’ tales of genetic chimaeras in The Island of Dr. Moreau to Sixth Day with Schwarzenegger, to coming A.I. films like Chappie, the predictive programming preparations are rolling out.   My recent research has focused on the Manhattan, and like the MK ULTRA programs, Manhattan had a much wider application than is commonly known.

In fact, MK ULTRA and Manhattan are related through the connect of biometrics and bio-warfare.  As MK ULTRA faded away, the program was renamed MK SEARCH and transferred to Fort Detrick, one of the U.S. Military’s biological weapons-focused bases.  And with both MK SEARCH and Manhattan, we find an overarching ideology of transhumanism that has its origins much earlier in the alchemists of the ancient world.

The Manhattan Project was publicly known as the secret operation spanning several years devoted to developing the atomic bomb, yet the truth is much deeper and darker.  The Manhattan Project was actually a vast program concerned with radiation, human exposure and the grand telos – engineering resistant, synthetic humanoids.  The inklings that we can gather about this overall, long-term project appear to be geared towards biologically engineering humans to withstand the coming onslaught of various alterations in the entire biosphere.

In order to transition to the synthetic overlay that will integrate SmartCities, the “Internet of Things,” human bio-engineering, cloning, biometrics, genetic programming and environmental engineering is now an open plan in numerous transhumanist lectures and publications.   Yet in order to reach this phase, experimentation is necessary, and what better means to that end than experimenting on populations en masse.  We have already seen in my discussions and analysis the technocratic establishment has no qualms about testing on unwitting subjects, so covert experimentation on mass populations is not without precedent.  From MK ULTRA to covert spraying, the U.S. government sprayed St. Louis, for example, in a radiation experiment under the guise of prepping for a Russian attack.

That this particular experiment (among numerous) involved radiation was no coincidence.  The 20th Century appears to have been the “radiation century,” suggesting the hypothesis by researchers like Sofia Smallstorm to be correct (see lecture at the bottom of this article).  Smallstorm argues the goal of the 20th century’s experiments were precisely to overwrite the existing biosphere with a new, synthetic overlay, or humanity 2.0.  Humanity Plus, the new homo evolutis, would be an androgynous being capable of technocratic control beneath the all-seeing Eye of panoptic surveillance.  Children will be grown in test tubes, according to the Brave New World plans of Huxley, and sex would become meaningless.  Offspring allowed to subsist will be genderless automatons, made for slave-like subjugation and toil.  Wells described this in his Time Machine, with the Morlocks and Eloi.
From Bertrand Russell to Dr. Edward Teller, the plan that is blossoming in our day is showing itself to be a unified one – a plan that spans the last century in particular as the century of the “final revolution” (in Russell’s words), where scientific process would reveal the secrets to technological imperialism.  Teller himself, as I have written, was not only a key figure in the development of the hydrogen bomb and the Manhattan Project, but also the father of aerosol spraying and atmospheric geoengineering.  This period is thus concurrent with the alchemical atomic and nuclear tests done igniting bombs in the atmosphere, beginning at the Trinity Site in New Mexico.  The history site ABomb1 explains:

“From 1945 to 1963 the U.S.A. conducted an extensive campaign of atmospheric nuclear tests, grouped into roughly 20 test “series.” After 1963 when the Limited Test Ban Treaty was signed testing for the U.S., Soviet Union, and Great Britain moved underground. France continued atmospheric testing until 1974 and China did so until 1980. This page focuses mainly on U.S. testing because those documents are most readily available.”

Researcher Michael A. Hoffman opines on the alchemical significance of these tests at the “Trinity” site and its scientistic underpinnings:

“The reason science is a bad master and a dangerous servant and ought not to be worshipped, is that science is not objective.  Science is fundamentally about the uses of measurement.  What does not fit the yardstick of the scientist is discarded.  Scientific determinism has repeatedly excluded some data from its measurement and fudged other data, such as Piltdown Man, in order to support the self-fulfilling nature of its own agenda be it Darwinism, or “cut, burn and poison” methods of cancer “treatment….
This process is observed in the Renaissance, which was informed by a secret gnosis whose core dogma was momentous change in man’s attitude toward nature: the alleged “perfection’ of a “flawed” Creation by the invention of the “omnipotent” human brain.  Thus it was the Renaissance magical tradition that gave birth to the monstrous world of machines, industrial pollution, ugliness and the modern way of death we have come to term the “rat race.” (Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, pg. 49)

BBC Wants to be Even Less Worth Watching than American Main Stream Media – Hosts Debate Over Whether Jesus and Buddha Were Space Aliens

The idiocy is part of a ratings push as sci-fi ideas bring good numbers these days, but it's also part of the greater agenda of preparing the world for the coming of beings that are "otherworldly"....the return of the "gods" of old...

Jason Colavito has a short summary of this intellectual fiasco (on all sides, really).
Just more insanity from  mainstream media. It’s hard to believe what actually passes for “serious” television these days. I guess the BBC is jealous of the way the Fantasy Channel in this country has padded its bottom line with ancient astronaut blather. It seems insulting the intelligence of viewers is now part of how programming is settled.

BBC's "Big Questions" Holds Debate Over Whether Jesus and the Buddha Were Space Aliens     
On Sunday the BBC hosted a debate on the ancient astronaut theory in which a panel questioned whether Jesus, Krishna, and the Buddha were space aliens. The Big Questions delivered 23 minutes of ancient astronaut speculation in the guise of probing the mysteries of religion. The Big Questions is a debate program that typically covers more serious subjects of moral, ethical, and religious concern. The preceding segments on the show were about counter-terrorism efforts in schools and how to improve democracy.
Host Nicky Campbell predicated the discussion on the NASA’s discovery of earthlike planets that might support life.

“It will be no surprise to the followers of those religions who’ve long believed that life—possibly not as we know it—exists elsewhere in the galaxy,” he said. “Life which has possibly exerted its influence here on planet Earth. Have beings from other planets guided our religions?”

Campbell’s panel of experts included the head of the Aetherius Society, a spiritualist, a scientist who is also a committed Christian, and a Christian bishop. There were no panelists who represented secular or skeptical viewpoints, nor were any mainstream historians interviewed. In fact, no Hindus or Buddhists were on hand to discuss their faiths either, according to published accounts. (I am not able to view the show from America due to geo-blocking by the BBC.)
